Veronica says please tell me the reason why You could spend all your days trying to find it You can move through the world crippled by your disguise Painted mask on the wall what's hiding behind it? If you close your eyes it almost feels like love If you close your eyes you can almost feel it I made up my mind but in crept doubt Your painted body was heaven sent

Veils 03:53
The sea inside the body is the blood To die inside the memory or to die inside the blood Honestly I can't remember much Of days spent in the body or crawling through the mud You can water it down inside If you want me around tonight Can't see behind broken light The veil No image aligns nothing behind The veil The weight inside the body is the mind Soft repeating shadows, remnant of the eye You can push it all down inside If you wanted to drown or fight Can't see behind broken light The veil No image aligns nothing behind The veil

about

[DREAM20]

Difference and Repetition, the band’s first release with Dream Recordings, marks a shift to a darker tonality in the band’s music. The EP’s title refers not only to the makings of a song but also to the structure of living itself, a seemingly endless procession of days broken by small joys and small sorrows. Musically, the four songs hew close to the band’s influences merging the “repetitions” of 80s coldwave and post-punk as well as the ethereality of bands like Slowdive and Pale Saints. Tolhurst’s lyrics draw on modern poetry, especially the work of the Romanian-born Jewish poet Paul Celan to craft narratives that are both oblique and sentimental, surreal yet poignant. On Difference and Repetition¸Topographies draws these disparate influences into a mesh of sound and feeling that hopes to act as a map of being, here and now.
